Google launched its Chrome OS on the premise that people want to get away from a Windows-like interface and wish for a quicker access to browsing and other applications. However, apparently the concept hasn’t really pitched with the users, as is evident from the rather non-existent success of Chrome OS. Now, Google has shipped out the first major update of the OS, which makes it look a lot like Windows.

Google had hoped that it would be able to grab the attention of PC makers and have the Chrome OS on netbooks. But this plan has entirely failed. At one hand, PC makers are not really interested in Chrome OS and with Microsoft mesmerizing the world with the glimpses of upcoming Windows 8, the greater part of the PC-market is hooked up to Microsoft in hopes of hosting its Windows 8 on their machines. Since Windows 8 will also run smoothly on ARM-based machines, this may definitely prove to be a really good year for Microsoft, and not very so for the Chrome OS team.

Now, Google has entirely revamped the outlook of Chrome OS with the first major update since its launch. This update drapes the OS into a look which is very close to that of Windows. It comes with a conventional desktop and a window manager rather than a mere browser. Although Google had aimed to make computing a lot more easier with the help of Chrome OS, users had to launch an all new tab to launch a new app and could use only one browser window at a given time.

Not much has changed on that end but with the introduction of features which are similar to the Taskbar and Launchpad, things have considerably improved in Chrome OS. The irony of this whole update is that Google had started Chrome OS in a bid to challenge the whole concept of desktop OS and has now ended being one itself.
